Greg Rose: Paradise Redux
July 11–October 6, 2003
read catalogue essay   back to list   see current exhibitions   see upcoming exhibitions

Los Angeles painter Greg Rose combines the flat, psychedelic-colored style of Southern California painting with Asian-inspired landscapes. The resulting paintings are both soothing and unnerving. Rose presents his calligraphic and minimalist representations of trees, streams, stones, and scholar rocks (like the ones in the Kemper Museum's indoor courtyard) in decal-like paint surfaces. Intense hues and disquieting color combinations complicate any easy reading of these paintings as contemplative Chinese landscapes. Rose straddles the borders between Asia and America and tradition and innovation. This was Rose's first museum exhibition. Greg Rose was an artist in residence.
